LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - Residents of a home near Longview are experiencing more bad luck after their house caught fire for the second time in a month.

At about 1:00 p.m., crews responded to a structure fire in the 100 block of Joan Lane, according to Gregg County Fire Marshal Mark Moore. The Longview Fire Department, the Judson Metro Volunteer Fire Department, and the West Harrison Fire Department were dispatched to the scene.

According to Moore, the residents were not home at the time of the fire and were notified of it.

No injuries have been reported.

This is the second time crews have been dispatched to a fire at this residence. Last month, firefighters had to use a sledgehammer in order to break the brick at the front of the home and reach the fire.

While the previous fire was determined to be caused by an electrical issue, the cause of the recent fire is still under investigation.
